Here is a great program for public or school libraries. You can honor your favorite, hard working librarian for the “I Love My Librarian Award.” The Carnegie Corporation of New York and the New York Times created the award to recognize the accomplishments of librarians in public, school, college, community college and university libraries for their efforts to improve the lives of people in their community.
The nominations for public librarians run are due by October 1 and nominations for school and academic librarians continue through October 15.
Up to 10 librarians in public, school and college, community college and university libraries will be selected to win $5,000 and will be honored at a ceremony and reception in New York at TheTimesCenter, hosted by The New York Times. In addition, a plaque will be given to each award winner’s library.
Each nominee must be a librarian with a master’s degree from a program accredited by the ALA in library and information studies or a master’s degree with a specialty in school library media from an educational unit accredited by the National Council for the Accreditation of Teacher Education. Nominees must be currently working in the United States in a public library, a library at an accredited two- or four-year college or university or at an accredited K-12 school.
Nominations will be accepted online at www.ilovelibraries.org/ilovemylibrarian. No paper nominations will be accepted.
You can also download/print these flyers to encourage someone to submit a nomination.
